It is a beautiful place in lovely surroundings, very elegant. The menu prices were reasonable, the breakfast was included in the room price and was very nice. The local wines were recommended and very good. The staff were very pleasing, I would stay there again if in that area, it is very pretty. The hotel grounds are not yet finished and so there was no nice area to sit outside and no pool, although it was early in the season and so that will probably change. Not suitable for children as there is nothing to do in the area unless you drive. The rooms we stayed in had very thin walls and so you could hear clear conversations from the next room.
Very friendly, excellent attention from the staff, peaceful, interesting, very good value.
We chose the Hotel Convento San Diego for a country weekend get-together for 5 friends who hadnñt seen each other in years. The hotel was perfect for this with a comfy relaxed atmosphere, fantastic staff and a cosy bar. The location and setting of the hotel were amazing, even more so at the fantastic price that we were offered.
It is a beautifully restored building on par with a parador - the fountain in the 'cafe' area is particularly soothing. The rooms were of a high quality as was the restaurant. Please write at least 15 words I am sure it would be lovely to stay in the winter. In the summer - very hot - ideally requires a pool/ terrace poss spa faciloities as it is rather isolated.
very much. a beautiful conversion of a convent with stunning design of including details. sound insulation (bathroom) not so good. although there are air shafts in the bathroom they should install extractor fans.
Nice cottage with fire wood. Outside garden and the mountain is more than beautiful. 3 black pigs welcomed us, which are for the famous Hammon Iberico. also close to the main roand and town. It was a bit cold in the morning, in 31 of March.
Convenient to Aracena. There was an opportunity to give feed-back. The self-catering option gives very poor accommodation, very poor value for money.
Lovely rustic cottage/apartment in a beautiful, relaxing setting. Very quiet and surrounded by nature. Will visit again shortly.
The bathroom should have a hairdryer
quiet country setting, friendly staff the bar had roun out of beer!
The quiet, rural position but very close to the centre of Aracena. The particular time was very cold and for the first night the place was a bit too chilly, but the hotel did respond to the situation and it improved considerably on the second night.
is was quiet, nice, spacious, relaxing.... no
The feeling of being completely removed from everyday cares and worries.
Really friendly and helpful staff. Great place.
There was a lovely view from the verandha outside the room. A pretty country type room and good shower/bath. A general housekeeper who was always on hand tried very hard to be helpful when tv wouldn't work or we needed extra towels. Hotel badly signed (on a bin by the side of the road - very easily missed). The access road was rutted. The room was smelly (drains possibly) and we were unable to leave the window or door open as the place was full of flies due to the proximity of livestock down the hill. The swimming pool was filthy and unusable (someone had started to clean it but the task was abandoned for some reason)A nice breakfast on the first morning got steadily worse with flies settling on the uncovered food.
Very nice host who speaks very good english. The menu was very flexible and creative (I'm a vegetarian). In one statement a very nice, clean and well-equiped hotel. Very difficult internet-connection & no wireles-connection because of the remote area
Lovely stay, would highly recommend it to others and will definitely come back myself !! Hotel and staff were extraordinary, but, above everything, there's lots of things to see and do round the area!! Beautiful countryside! Delicious local cuisine! Glorious weather!! Especially enjoyed visit to Jabugo (town within an hour drive) and tour to "Gruta de las maravillas", spectacular cave system underground Aracena!! Undoubtedly worth seen! And worth it to stay in La Era de Aracena. I'll see yous again!
Nice place, well situated, beautiful views and supportive as well as friendly staff. All mixed together results in a relaxing weekend...unforgetable!!
The view was beautiful and just about made up for the things we did not like. Only having 2 tables and 4 chairs between at least 6 rooms on the ground floor terrace, it was a bit like claiming sunbeds round a swimming pool. Getting charged E1.80 for 2 bread rolls at dinner. The dinner selection was limited with no menu of the day only "a la carte" choices. The first room they put us in had a bad odour apparently due to flooding problems last year, although they did actually us move to another room the next day when we complained. The air conditioning did not cool the room during the night although appeared to work perfectly during the day.
Very peaceful, fabulous views, friendly staff, excellent food, lovely room, glorious countryside, charming local village with fascinating cave system and ham museum. Needs a better sign off the main road! Hard to find and only a narrow rough track for access. Lots of "Can it really be down here?" Moments (though worth persevering!). Maybe this hotel hasn't been open for long & a few rough edges still visible, but staff extremely willing to cope and delightful. A winner for 12 months time!
This was an excellent vacation break!! I was willing to discover a bit of the Spanish country side, rather than the typical beach and coastal destinations that popular among Brit and Irish travelers... and the experience is highly recommendable! The hotel location is superb, surrounded of mountains, wild life and stunning landscapes! The owner and staff were very helpful and spoke very good English!! Made us feel home!!! We really had a blast! Delicious food was served in the bistro and everywhere around the area!! Again, highly recommended for those looking for a vacation/weekend break in an alternative rural/countryside destination!! WILL be back! THX folks!
Excellent service by Alfonso, who likes his guests and will go the extra bit in order secure their comfort and pleasant stay. Very good food (spefically the Gazpacho). Nothing to report.
Receptionist help me solve problems with internet connection by giving me the key to their conference room, where I could connect to the internet. The hotel can accommodate handicaped guests. while it is a good idea, it also means that its aesthetics is peculiar but it can also affect tangible things. For example, shower has no doors, but rather curtains that are not particularly comfortable and that oblige you to shower in a closed dark space that does not isolate water well, nor is comfortable. Wireless did not work: I was told my computer had "a problem" but in fact I have travelled extensively with it for now 4 years and this was the first time it had "a problem." Last: the hotel is not expensive but I stayed in rincon del abad nearby before and it is just as good and much cheaper (half the price): I recommend it....
Attitude of staff. Rooms were very good and clean. We intend to stay again at this hotel.
The rooms are very spacious, clean and modern, the staff were very helpful and moved us to another room closer to WiFi in the reception area Wi-fi is not as described, it is not available in the entire hotel - it is only available in the areas close to reception. You do need to let the luke warm water run for an eternity before it gets hot - pity to waste so much water
The position which was close to all the attractions On the Friday night the noise for the Nightclub opposite was unbearable it went on till 4.30 in the morning, singing , shouting car doors banging.
Basicaly what the hotel offers is a very center location very very near to the caves. The room is very old and the bads are unconfortable.
The hotel was well situated in Aracena, numerous bars and restaurants close at hand, quiet hotel. Enjoyed our stay.
Nice, rustic setting for a quiet week-end getaway. We had to wait for breakfast service which was the basic coffee, toast and spread. Am not sure if it is better in the summer.
glorious location,lovely weather, comfortable room, we spent our two days walking the way-marked footpaths from the village of Galaroza. The hotel itself was spotless, the location and weather cold,nt have been better, it was such a pity that the warmth was,nt reflected in the attitude of the staff. We were not made to feel welcome, we were barely spoken to, not many smiles evident..
nice (only spanish speaking) people no elevator; everything (food, room, bar) ordinary: not good and not bad.
